Thanks for the add
Just picked up this gem, 95 LX 1 owner lots of good mods
4.6 liter, 2V motor. Black over grey leather interior. Only 88,446 miles.
Car has an MV Performance built 4.6-liter 2V headed motor. Parts include a Teskid aluminum block, Steen racing ported & polished heads, custom comp cams, ported & polished intake, eagle forged rods, JE forged pistons, cobra crank, 150HP Nitrous Express wet shot system, Kooks Customs stainless 3/4 headers, off road x-pipe, MAC mufflers, full dual 2 1/2 inch exhaust front to back, 4.11 rear gears, built 4R70 transmission with PI triple disc 3800 stall convertor. Custom metal hood, 18x9.5 2K Cobra R wheels in chrome 5x4.25 pattern. Upgraded suspension parts. Lots of custom work.

My second performance Ford, other is a 2000 Lightning Red 85K miles.

Looking forward to learning the in's and out's of the Bird, its a fun car already did some research on here had the PIA pin that falls out of the ignition linkage (bought it that way), pin was laying in the channel and I was able to get it back in and its working again.

Having some issues with it wanting to stall at idle when in gear. I thought it was because I was unhooking the battery to shut it off and it needed to relearn the idle again after the battery was hooked back up but since I fix the linkage I have ran it a few times and it is still wanting to stalling out.

Motor sounds really nice youtube link from PO

Thanks Joe,

I think he is/was a member here, he mentioned TCCoA when we were talking about the mods and all the things he has done to it in the 20+ years he has owned it. I think I got a pretty good deal for 4k. No?
